7:02 am
the morning. san francisco, we'll go mostly cloudy and only upper 50s for many on the coast and also for those in the north bay. highs today, upper 50s to some mid-60s. but gilroy and also out towards brentwood, maybe antioch to get up to 63, 64. these are just higher clouds. the main system is back mere. it will be pushing inland. it's kind of -- there's a lot of moisture. it's tapped into moisture from the hawaiian islands. there's plenty to go around. we'll need to juice things up a little bit. 36, santa rosa. hayward, 46. again, we start off with a little bit of sun here in the morning. but by this afternoon, noon, i think things go cloudy and temperatures again in the upper 50s or very, very low 60s. farther south and east, you get more sun. a little break in the morning. hopefully rain for everybody by tomorrow. the driest year ever. look for temperatures in the 50s and 60s. here's sal. steve, good morning.
7:03 am
we're looking at a commute that's just average. some areas are not doing well. but others are better. it's kind of averaging out into an okay commute. for example, if you look at 880 here, it's looking pretty good near the coliseum heading up to downtown oakland. when you get to the bay bridge, we don't have a super-huge backup. it's backed up for a little bit. the 880 ramps are the best way to get there, especially if you have fastrack, you will be able to bypass a lot of that traffic. 580, that's a different story. 580 in livermore has been slow the entire way from the altamont pass all the way through. we had a crash on 680. that has traffic backed up into san ramon, heading south towards pleasanton. it gets better if you are on the road after pleasanton. but the traffic is not that bad on 680 and fremont. 101 southbound near belmont we've had a series of collisions. 7:03. back to the desk. all right. thank you, sal. police in santa rosa are asking for the public's help as

7:07 am
caltrans to commuters who say it looks gread. the first cars went through -- great. the first cars went through at 4:00 a.m. the project cost $3 million under budget. it took three years and ten months to complete. for first time in 50 years, caltrans will no longer have to manually force the flow of traffic every day using the middle bore. this is a huge accomplishment. no major injuries in the reconstructiontion. you will see the modern ventilation system. the fans you will see. there's also other safety features. but speaking with commuters, they are excited. >> next thing i know i'm going through this wonderful fourth bore. it's wider. it's straighter. it's flat. caltrans did a great job. i can't tell you how happy this makes me. >> reporter: no hassle with the merging, no wondering whether or not there will be two
7:08 am
tunnels at the end of your journey. that will be huge for a lot of commuters. in terms of the commute, though, a couple of things. the new tunnel probably won't change the traffic back upthat we see, especially in the morning. this time it's westbound on 24. but for the drivers again going in the opposite direction, that's where you will see a major difference. you are taking a look at the offpeak traffic. drivers have a choice to go between either tunnel. norm little, there would be the different -- normally, there would be the dividers. but that's not there any longer. they don't want drivers, if they do go through the fourth bore, talk on your cell phone, take pictures. >> they want you getting -- they want you getting through safely. brian flores, ktvu channel 2 news. new this morning, a report says commercial airline pilots
